I live in Santa Barbara, California and love to spend time at the beach (biking, jogging, surfing or just hanging out) Life goes by quickly, why hesitate! The moment is as fleeting as a fast moving stream. Let go of the petty things in life and extract the essence. Meaning is not found on the surface, and if you think that it is, you will chase your own tail until the end of time. . I received a B. S. in Bio-Psychology at U. C. L. A. I am a lover of substantial topics of conversation; I enjoy talking about things that matter and affect everyone, like human motivation (why we do what we do) , world geo-politics, the relationship between spirituality and everyday life, etc. I am not obsessed with very many things-- in other words, I do not allow too many things to distract me from what is truly important (e. g. family, friends or the person right in front of me) . I like women with confidence and a sharp and wicked sense of humor; since I consider myself to have a quick wit, the fun is enhanced greatly when there are two people to stir the pot. I also prefer women that are comfortable in who they are. Therefore, I do not like a person that is always trying to live up to, or conform to, some abstract notion of what it means to be, okay. I have worked and continue to work on that very thing in myself; albiet, it can sometimes be very difficult --especially living in this materialistic and self-aborbed culture that we live in. --ha, ha. I consider myself a hard worker; although, I will not disrupt the balance between life and work--I work to live not live to work; having money is important, but not having the time to enjoy it is unacceptable. The exact type of woman I would like to date is very broad--no pun intended. However, I would like a women with an education of sorts. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; however, there are certain benefits to be had from dating a hottie--he he. Anyway, I wish everyone the best ( God knows this is a tough racket) and please be as honest and kind to each other as humanly possible; remember, even though men are good at stuffing their emotions we still have them, folks. So, good luck in your search and remember-- do not settle for second best. . .
